Liquat "Leo" A. Khan
CW3(P) Liquat (Leo) A. Khan, the Special Agent-in-Charge of the CID Office at West Point, New York, passed away on April 30, 2019.
Leo was born August 13, 1968, in British Guyana. When he was going into high school, his father passed away and he had to drop out of school to take care of his mother and other siblings. His grandfather brought his family to the United States where he was able to attend school and finish. While in school, and after graduation, he worked hard to put his brothers and sisters through school in order for them to receive an education.
In 1990, he joined the US Army Reserves and returned to New York where he worked as mechanic and security guard. He saved enough money to start his own small business and put his siblings through college. After September 11th, he decided to be an active duty Soldier because, "…the United States has given so much to me and my family and that I am proud to be called an American."
Leo was accepted to the CID program June 22, 2004 and was recommended for Warrant Officer in 2007. As a Warrant Officer, Leo has been assigned as a Team Chief, Intelligence OIC, Special Agent-in-Charge and Detachment Commander at West Point, Korea, Germany, and Kuwait.
Information concerning funeral services is pending.
